Bird fetish by Delvin Leekya
Zuni bird fetish, hand-carved out of white marble. It is 1" tall, 2" long, and 5/8" wide, with inlay turquoise eyes and inlay jet dots on the wings. Native American made. It is by Zuni artist Delvin Leekya, and it is signed on the bottom.
Bird fetishes were thought to carry prayers to the sky asking for rain and blessings.
